Homemade Vanilla Fudge 1

Haiku 192

Soft vanilla fudge

As if I don’t have enough

Sugar in my life!

.

Yeah, let’s be honest – I only made this fudge because I’m stuck here in Lockdown and spend my evenings watching YouTube videos on baking.

And I don’t even want to think how many times I need to walk round the garden to burn off each piece I eat!!

Homemade Vanilla Fudge 2

Here’s the recipe, because now you want some too! –

Vanilla Fudge Recipe

150 g Butter
Tin of Condensed Milk
2 Cups Sugar (I used pale brown)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence

Melt the butter, condensed milk and sugar in a thick-bottomed saucepan over a medium heat. Stir constantly (to avoid burning on the bottom) for about 15 minutes, or until thickening.

Remove from heat and continue to stir as the mixture cools, then add a teaspoon of Vanilla Essence.

Stir until the fudge is quite thick, then pour into a greased dish to cool. Cut into pieces.

Eat!!

Happiness is . . .

Suddenly remembering there’s a slice of milk tart left in the fridge! Yum!

What is melktert? It is an Afrikaans dessert, similar, but superior, to the English egg custard.

Try it out for yourself:
